Boylan Heights, Raleigh NC

Boylan Heights was the first planned suburb of Raleigh. The neighborhood was carved out of a plantation in the 1920's. After WWII the neighborhood fell into disrepair; the houses were cut up into small apartments and rooming houses.  Then in the mid 1970's the zoning was amended and neighbors began buying and renovating the houses. Boylan Heights acquired historic status and is now mostly single family restored houses with only a few houses in need of rehabilitation remaining.  Mayor Meeker, Representative Ross and Joseph Huberman are on the Dix Property Commission and live in Boylan Heights.  In 1818, William Montfort, Boylan's father purchased Joel Lane's Wakefield Plantation, much of the land south, and west of the current Joel Lane House, on Hargett. In 1855, he deeded 100 acres of the original Wakefield to his son, who, three years later, engaged William Percival, an English architect to construct a building. The resulting structure sits behind a wrought iron fence at 308 Boylan Ave. It is called Montfort Hall. Built in 1858, the Italianate structure is centered around a rotunda, which is lit by a stained glass cupola. After William's death, in 1899, Boylan Heights was developed, Raleigh's first planned "suburb". Plat maps for Boylan Heights date to 1907, as do plat maps for the Glenwood Land Development project, which became the Glenwood Brooklyn neighborhood later that year.
